I'm supposed to defend the field and say, "Vanilla is bad -- let me show you all these magical ways to bring the sexy back and blow their mind!" And as a sex writer, that's my bread and butter. But sometimes, most times, I think vanilla is still pretty freaking amazing
All those things you knew about dating... gone, out the window! The book has been rewritten. Online dating is a major learning curve for the uninitiated and can cause more pain than pleasure if you don't enter into it with your eyes wide open.
When you first start dating online, you may be excited by all of the options. The possibilities feel endless! After a few months, though, you may be exhausted by all the missed connections, bad dates and well... all the options!
I asked three single guys what they wish women would do differently on dates. Their answers? The most glaringly obvious tips ever. But, their advice is also so simple it's easy to forget.
Every time I hear a couple's relationship has fallen apart because "she isn't the same person she was when we dated," I nod my head knowingly. She (or he) did NOT change. They simply couldn't keep the lovely sales presentation going forever.
Through our life experiences, we have lessons. Like our strapping student debt, lessons don't come without some form of payment. In life, this payment comes in the form of a lot of emotional baggage. Everyone has it.

You're beautiful and you will always be my baby. I love you more than you will ever know, and the bond we share can never be replaced.
Forgiveness is a common theme in my office. Forgiveness of ourselves. And, forgiveness of our loved ones. Much like the art of letting go, forgiven...
I am not going to say that watching a man vacuum is traditionally sexy, but here's what's less sexy: me doing it all the time. Helping with housework frees your wife up to get relaxed and in a sexy mood.
At 28, this place of heartbreak feels so familiar, like an old scar, tingly to the touch. Yes, I've been here before. No, it isn't less painful. No, it isn't less sad. But, yes, I do know my way around this place, and I now know how to gently make my way home.
When I got married, I was still very much a child. I had no idea what it meant to live with my significant other, day in, day out, and make it work. I had yet to learn that getting married and being married were two very different things.
Sometimes, you've just got to jump in, commit to getting naked with your partner and just have sex.
